The diet

Well I am officially on the road to loosing weight. I am counting calories and doing a diabetic. How exciting..... It is the easiest way for me and I feel like it helps me in the long run. I have done it before and lost a bunch of weight. Then after I stoped trying to loose weight it didn't come back like some diets because I wasn't eating weird stuff. It taught me to eat the right things and when. So why you ask am I loosing weight if I didn't gain? Because apperently that goes down like a lead balloon when you are pregnant. At least that is my excuse.... :) I actually don't know how much I weigh now but I am sure I could loose at least 50 lbs. UGH. I really wish I had time to go to the gym. Some day....

the best

I have a babysitter/nanny come every Tuesday to watch the kids. I LOVE HER!!! She does my laundry. She cleans my floors. She does my dishes. She watches my crazy kids. AND today she made a sour cream coffee cake that I started yesterday but didn't have time to finish. (AKA got butter out and that was it...:)

Uppers and lowers

Well, LC has to get an upper GI. She has acid reflux and is having problems breathing after she eats due to the reflux. The Upper GI will see if there is anything else going on that is causing the problem. Hoopefully we will have some answers. I am wondering if there is something that I am eating.

I am at my wits end with BAB. She is sooooo loud and whiny. She never stops talking. She tries to boss EVERYBODY around. Including me. She acts like she is LM's mother and tells her everything to do. Yes, she is the oldest. But this is seriously out of control. And if she throws one more fit today I am going to make her stay in her room for the rest of the day. I am so sick of this stage....... May it end FAST!

Sloppy Joe...kinda

I put 2 recipes together to make this. It turned out really good. I am by no means an excellent cook. However, I do make a good supper when I feel like it!

Pizza Sloppy joes
2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb sausage
2 cups swiss cheese shredded
pizza sauce (enough to make sloppy!)

Opt. pizza mix in's- mushrooms, green peppers, onions, etc

Cook the sausage and gr beef together. Drain. Add mix in's and sauce. Add the cheese is last minute. I also froze some in my family size portions. It worked out well! Enjoy!

Aaaaaaaalllllll by my seeeeeeelf.....

Ok that was lame.... I don't even know who sings that.... Ok I just googled it. Eric Carmen. Never heard of him. Interesting...

So if you haven't guessed yet, Pilot is gone for the weekend. So I am, as stated before, all by myself. I think I will be ok. So far not to bad. LC takes a pretty good nap in the morning. Then she will prolly wake up when I am trying to get the gets lunch of course! But we will have to work ourselves into a groove.

I have loaded the dishwasher and started it, vacuumed, and started a batch of chocolate chip cookies. The kids are dressed and fed. I am contemplating on weather to get the fall clothes out. The kids need the next size for sure. LM's little belly is starting to stick out! I am going to have to find some pants that fit BAB. Her 2t pants fit length wise, but are to tight in the waist. Maybe I will have to invest in a good seamstress.

The girls are doing pretty good with LC. LM wants to hold her all the time and BAB wants to mother her. So I have to hold them off with a stick. Both are jealous and want me to hold them too. Which is quite hard.

I still want to can a bunch of stuff this year if I can. I want some more tomatoes. Thanks to my friend Taiya I have some already! She was nice enough to can some for me! So even if I don't have time to do more I have a few. I would like to do some applesauce, peaches, and freeze some corn. I think corn season around here is almost done though. I might be to late. Oh well, I got a baby instead and that is worth it!

So Sheila puked yesterday. Pilot was so kind as to clean it for me. However, he used a concentrated cleaner on the carpet. It stinks. Sigh.... I have a bottle all set up for use. I have all the windows open trying to get the smell out. UGH!
